BCCI nominee likely to head ICC’s finance and commercial affairs committee | Cricket News


MELBOURNE: The BCCI representative in the almighty ICC The council is likely to be headed by the finance and commercial affairs (F&CA) committee of the global cricket body.
While BCCI has not yet made it official, Secretary Jay Shah seems likely to be Indian representative at the decision-making board of the ICC, unless he decides to send Roger Inside there and remains part of the Chief Executive Committee.
The F&CA Committee is the most important of all the subsidiary committees of the ICC and for several years BCCI representatives were not part of it until former BCCI President Sourav Ganguly became its member.
“If Jay represents the BCCI on the ICC board, he will automatically be part of the F&CA committee. But India is far from heading the F&CA and it is BCCI’s turn to head the committee,” an ICC insider privy to the development told PTI.
Shah will reach Melbourne in the next few days for the annual ICC Council meeting.
The newly elected BCCI President Roger Binny and IPL Chairman Arun Dhumal is also expected to reach Australia to watch the T20 World Cup proceedings.
It will be interesting to see who represents BCCI at the ICC Chief Executive Committee (CEC) meeting.
The convention is that the president sits on the ICC board and secretary on the CEC.
The F&CA Committee decides on ICC’s annual budget and is also the committee that determines the revenue sharing model, sponsorship and various rights deals for a particular cycle.
As for the chairman’s position, incumbent Greg Barclay of New Zealand looks like the front-runner, although there is a second candidate who has submitted his nomination.
The members are tight-lipped about the second candidate, but it is understood to be either Zimbabwean cricket board chief Tevengwa Mukhulani or Singapore’s Imran Khwaja.
Sourav Ganguly can continue as head of ICC Cricket Committee as it is a term of three years.
